Who We Are

Teska was launched in Evanston, Illinois in 1975 by the man himself, Robert B. Teska. Famous for saying, “Good design is good business,” Bob Teska’s team of creative planners, designers and landscape architects has since grown and expanded, now with offices in both Evanston and Plainfield, IL.  With over 40 years experience, Teska is a leader in urban planning, landscape architecture, site design, economic development, and community engagement. We are solid believers in the power of the people, and by providing the right tools, we take interaction to the next level.
